Why must the good die young?

I know they could conceivably pull it out. There are still seconds on the clock, but Battlestar Galactica is infuriatingly bad right now. I’m still working through a backlog of episodes, but the one I just saw was simply appalling; a paint-by-numbers genero-hostage-crisis…IN SPAAAAACE! A script full of holes and painful clichés, directed with the world’s worst “OMG fly-on-the-wall documentary style” camerawork and the patronizing idea that we can’t remember the villain’s motivations without seeing the goddamn flashback over and over again. Gee, fella, I can’t remember why Lee’s in the bar with this girl again, so mebbe you should wobble-shot her boobs to remind us what his motivation is. Cuz I r rilly dum.

I really, really hope they secure this shit. Because right now it’s like watching a show I love die gurgling, and the only thing I can say for it is that, well, it doesn’t have Kennedy in it.


Not being a BG (or Buffy) fan myself, I don’t have much to say… except that your Kennedy post contained one of the greatest “critic” lines I’ve ever read: “She manages to imbue a two-dimensional character with one-dimensionalness.” Ouch! :)

It’s sad how much easier it is to write bad reviews, isn’t it? :|

It gets worse. Wait until you get to Scar.

They mostly pulled it out of the crapper for the season 2 finale, but it’s going to be very interesting to see where they’re going for season 3.

I did see Scar. Actually, Scar ALMOST kept my interest…no, no wait, that was just because during the dogfighting bits, Cat or whatever her name was couldn’t TALK as much :P
